    As her great granddaughter I now understand how devastating it is to loose a family member.
    Now I realize that the saying was true you don’t know how much you love someone until you loose them.
    She was an incredible woman and lived a very happy LONG life but we are very sad she had to go.

    Joyce and the whole family, I am so sorry for your loss of your mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, great-great grandmother and friend. I know from everything Joyce said about her over the years that she was a good, caring and faithful woman who loved her family very much. My love and prayers are with you.

    I never had the pleasure of meeting Mrs. Fuqua, but Her son Joe, and wife Pam are two of my dearest friends. Joe has always treated me like a brother from the day we met. In the years that I have known them have welcomed me into their family and home with open arms. They say that the best way to judge a person is by the ones that they leave behind. Faith, Hope and Love are some good things God gave us, and the greatest is Love.
